The Puzzle Alarm Clock. Hmm…as if it wasn’t enough to be woken at dawn by the clamour of a bedside alarm, we now have the fiendish puzzle clock. Wanna switch off the alarm? Gotta do the puzzle first! So, how long before this particular birthday present ends up sailing through the nearest window then? A$49.95.

 This “eye opener” of a gadget is an alarm clock come 4-piece jigsaw puzzle in one. When it’s time to leave your incredibly cosy bed each morning, not only will your ears be treated to a fantastic ringing melody, a 4-piece jigsaw puzzle randomly shoots out. So what you ask? Well, in order to turn off a ringing alarm, you must solve the jigsaw puzzle, assembling it back on to the clock.


  • “A 4-piece jigsaw puzzle randomly shoots out”? Does that mean that I have to find the pieces because they’re scattered to the four corners of my room? Or that the clock creates a new jigsaw puzzle with differently-shaped pieces every day? The person who devised this (a) sleeps alone every night and (b) has poor motor coordination, because within three days I’d be reassembling this thing in my sleep–that, or I’d be exiled to the living room couch.

  • Within 3 days this thing would be a pile of rubble on the street outside! :-)
